Episode 276

Of course we want to raise responsible, respectful children. But the strategies that we are most comfortable with – like punishments and rewards – don’t seem to be effective with our kids, especially those with big emotions! How can we teach our kids to do what they need to do when traditional strategies often lead to worse behavior, meltdowns, or unhealthy self-esteem?

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • Why “traditional” ways of motivating better behavior aren’t effective for some children 
  • How punishments and rewards can actually make some kids feel and act worse 
  • Strategies we can use instead to motivate responsible behavior
